Dynamic Cardioid multi-purpose mic
We realize that this is a bold statement but there is plenty of evidence to back up this claim. While Audix has continued to develop “application specific” microphones, the i-5 was designed to be cost effective, easy to use, and able to fill a very wide variety of miking needs. As a companion to the D-6, the i-5 has quickly established itself as the ultimate snare drum mic. Similarly, the i-5 has achieved critical acclaim for its ability to mic guitar cabs, horns, percussion, and acoustic instruments. The i-5 also provides exceptionally good results in the studio. Engineers are discovering that the i-5 is a perfect microphone for tracking tracking - accurate , natural, consistent, reliable, durable, and affordable!
